If you’re not subscribed to PC Gamer, the issue hits newsstands on March 2nd. To tide you over, here’s a look at the magazine cover.
After yesterday’s unveil of the Fallout: New Vegas teaser trailer we wanted to make sure you knew about some of the “first looks” publications are getting of the game.

What is the process for determining art direction on any of the games you produce?
The art direction comes from our concept artists, our lead artists on the project (Matt Carofano for Elder Scrolls; Istvan Pely for Fallout 3), and our game director/exec producer, Todd Howard. We go through months and months of concepts, looking for the right tone and look. We tend to create concepts of overall scenes to help dictate the direction before getting into lots of detail.
